First of all, I really want to make this quilt for a friend's new baby. I happened upon some red and white anchor fabric and wham! I was inspired to pull and cut fabrics for the whole quilt. Which, for me, is so far from normal! I never cut out a whole quilt in advance! Since I'm usually so scrappy, I just go along piece by piece until a quilt is done. With the whole thing cut out, it shouldn't take much time at all to get it all pieced together.
A friend gave me a bunch of magazines and I fell in love with this Carpenter's Wheel quilt from Spring/Summer 2008 Quilt Sampler.
|Love, love, LOVE!!|
|Can I stand to make a quilt with only 9 fabrics? Will it hold my interest while piecing? Will it hold my interest as a finished quilt? We shall soon find out!|
|I've never used this method before, but then, I've never made a quilt that would use so many of the same fabric combo HSTs. I love how quick and easy this is!|
|32 HSTs pieced in about 5 minutes? I love it! There's no way I could make as many scrappy ones in the same amount of time.|
I see a lot of piecing ahead in my weekend plans. How about you?
